BLOEMFONTEIN’S city manager, Sibongile Mazibuko, has resigned.

“We’ve got a signed letter in our possession,” said Mxolisi Siyonzana, speaker of the Mangaung Metro, in the recent council meeting of Mangaung in Bloemfontein.

He said the situation surrounding the former city manager would be discussed on 24 March in the Mangaung Metro’s council meeting.

Hardie Viviers, caucus leader of the DA, asked to see the resignation letter which supposedly has Mazibuko’s signature. Siyonzana refused to show the council the letter and said the resignation letter was a matter between Mazibuko and him.

A reliable source confirmed that Mazibuko handed in an unsigned resignation letter, which was later returned to her.

Several attempts to reach Mazibuko were unsuccessful.

The council decided to retain Thankiso Mea for another three months as the acting city manager.

The council also agreed to refer the matter to the MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta), Olly Mlamleli, for further deliberation.
